, a pro gadhafi facebook page mentioned his running habits and a picture of ambassador stevens. the posting directed a threat against stevens. issa says stevens stopped his morning runs for about a week and then resumed them. in june, an ied was successfully placed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi, blowing a hole in the security perimeter gate, big enough for 40 people to go through. and in the weeks before the september 11th attacks, unarmed libyan guards working at the consulate were warned by family members to quit their jobs, because of, quote, rumors in the community of an impending attack. those are just a few of the 13 things that darrell issa listed. and he also included this major allegation. according to issa, multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11th attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the state department has responded to darrell issa's letter. here is spokes

straight from ambassador chris stevens before he and three other americans were killed in the deadly consulate attack. republican leaders of the house oversight committee have released a batch of cables and e-mails from the ambassador and other diplomatic security workers. they say the documents are evidence that the obama administration ignored a rapidly deteriorating security situation in libya. ambassador stevens wrote this cable in august. the absence of significant deterrence has contributed to a security vacuum that is being exploited by independent actors. what we have seen are not random crimes of opportunity but rather targeted and discriminate attacks. but obama's administration officials are saying that the documents don't tell the whole story. they also say the release of the unedited e-mails could endanger the lives of the libyans working with the u.s. >>> there is a tense situation going on right now off the coast of israel. overnight israeli soldiers stormed a ship headed for its coast. passengers say they were trying to break the sea blockade of gaza that's been in ef

said president obama. you did a good job. >> yes, okay. >> steven -- >> if we do that we'll have growth. >> steven, governor romney is a smart, successful businessman. that pa rt is not in dispute. it appears like his plan is to cutting costs and becoming more profitable by 2016. americans are not employees of the government, being president is actually very different from being a ceo. i smoke with bill daley last week. he worked in the white house and the public service. he made a good point. he said a ceo can replace 15 or 30 people even in a big company and change it entirely. the budget is predetermined, the board knows it's coming. a president just can't do that. within the constraints of what a president can actually do, really, how is life going to be that different in four years if mitt romney is president? >> you're right.

for the assault that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. elise, you just interviewed secretary clinton. what exactly did she tell you? >> reporter: well, isha, you know there's been so much political back and forth in washington over who was responsible for the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans and even last week in the vice presidential debate, when asked about those additional requests for security that were denied, the vice president said we didn't know anything about that, and secretary clinton when i asked her about that, she said listen, this is a state department functn. the state department finds the embassy security for embassies and consulates around the world and that's my state department. i have 60,000 employees and i take responsibility, isha. i think she was trying to take a little bit of the heat off the white house at this time when an election is coming up and also trying to remind people that hey, four americans died, including an ambassador, and we need to stop this blame game. she said she doesn't want any more

public service including ambassador chris stevens. what lessons must we learn from that and how do we protect diplomats. that's the question, secretary clinton has ordered an investigation and review of the process led by one of the most respected people in washington, ambassador tom pickering and that process should not be politicized. that committee needs to take the time and the care -- what's happening is this entire process h has been politicized. we ought to put our emphasis on finding out what happened. i think that's where this debate should be. >> i want to talk about that point more in a moment. an interesting "new york times" headline today saying that the men the u.s. suspects being behind the attacks is literally snubbing the the u.s. and walking around without being questioned on the streets of libya right now. but earlier today, state department spokeswoman was asked if the state department was made aware of what the intelligence community knew within 24 hours of the attacks. that is, that extremists led the attack. of course in contrast to what susan rice said on the s

, not only at our post but at our annex. and we couldn't find ambassador stevens. and we were trying desperately to figure out what had happened to him and to shaun smith and the others who were there. so it was an intense, you know, long ordeal for everybody at the state department and in libya. >> now, i know the investigation is going to play itself out. >> right. >> but in the short-term, the state department officials and diplomatic security admit that requests for security were denied because they said that it was adequate based on the threat level. did you get that intelligence about the threat level? or was this a bad security decision? >> you know, elise, one of the things we're going to explore in the accountability review that i have ordered is exactly what happened. and what can we do to make sure that we learn lessons from it. nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than i do. i knew chris stevens. i've had a chance to meet the families of the other three men who we lost. i take this very personally. so we're going to get to the bottom of it. and then we're going
from chris stevens was his concern about security at the consulate. i don't expect the president to know when 16 people are moved in or out or something like that. but i certainly expect him to know in his daily intelligence brief that things were deteriorating in benghazi to a terrible degree. and then, of course, when it happened, we saw all this business of spontaneous demonstrations, which anyone with any knowledge knew -- by the way, the cia station chief in benghazi's first message back was that this was a terrorist attack and we all knew and they knew that there was an al qaeda-affiliated organization there. this is really an unacceptable screw-up and obviously the president should have known better. >> let's talk about the debate tonight because you're unique in this regard. you've debated both mitt romney when he was seeking the republican nomination, you won. you debated the president when you were the republican nominee. he won that. i'm going to play a couple of clips of you debating both of these individuals four years ago. >> my hero is a guy named tedly roosevelt.
